Last Monday, the Marlins recorded the lowest attendance at an MLB game this season, with just 5,2917 fans in attendance at Marlins Park. They’d set the previous low on April 2 with 5,934. In contrast, their double-A affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, saw their highest attendance yet of their three-year existence, with 327,388 fans attending games there this season.
So how do these two teams compare with others? With the minor league season almost over, the Jumbo Shrimp rank second in the Southern League with average attendance of 4,960. The Marlins rank last in the National League (as well as last for all of MLB):
|Southern League Team||Average Attendance|
|Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp||4,960|
|Pensacola Blue Wahoos||4,354|
|National League Team||Average Attendance|
Just yesterday, Minor League Baseball tweeted that for the 15th consecutive year, they’ve had attendance of 40 million or more. You can find more Minor Leagues attendance stats at milb.com and Major League stats at Baseball Reference.
